Boris Johnson to face UK parliament after Supreme Court ruling
Prime Minister Boris Johnson has gone back home on Wednesday after a ruling from the Supreme Court that he had unlawfully suspended parliament; the action had further complicated Brexit conflicts.
Johnson is working hard to lead Britain out of the European Union on Oct.31, with or without a deal. However, majority members of the House of Commons are also working hard to lead Britain out of the EU with a deal.
The UK parliament is set to resume at 11:30 a.m. after the Supreme Court ruled on Tuesday that Johnson’s resolve to suspend the parliament for five weeks was against the law and therefore null and void.
Before getting suspended, The House of Commons had passed a law requiring the prime minister to ask the EU to defer the Brexit deadline if no agreement would be made by Oct. 19.
When asked by media about Johnson’s plan to overcome the given resolution, Johnson did not answer the question but said instead that Brexit would still be on Oct. 31, with or without a deal.
